Last week Kevin and I celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary!!
Kevin's mom was so nice to come down and watch all three kiddos while we went away for three days of fun and sun in san Diego.
We watched movies, read books, ate lots of good food, got in some workouts, shopped till we dropped, and even fit in a lot of sleep and relaxing.
On our first day there (Tuesday) we went hiking and to the tidepools at Cabrillo national monument. Poor Kevin slipped and cut up his foot so he was in a bit of pain for the rest of our trip. :(
After hiking we went to the Old Towne Mexican Cafe for enchiladas and the most amazing cheese crisp on a tostada. I am still dreaming about it. We also walked around Old Towne San Diego for awhile.
The next day we went to Phil's BBQ for lunch and then we headed up to La Jolla to hike and roam around. We went down into an old cave and then we also hiked around by La Jolla Cove and got pictures. We shopped around downtown La Jolla and then also drove by the SD Temple and we got Sprinkles cupcakes close by!
That night we also spent a few hours shopping around Fashion Valley Mall and I finally found some jeans I liked! We ended the night with dessert at Extraordinary Desserts which was actually way too rich for me!
We ended the night with ice cream sundaes at Moot Time Creamery in Coronado and then we went back and enjoyed the evening fireside reading books outside out hotel room.
On both Wednesday and Thursday I woke up and went running close by the hotel for about 40 minutes. It was gorgeous and felt fabulous!
After my run on Wednesday we went to Hodad's for fries & burgers (or grilled cheeses) and then we headed over to Coronado to ride on a surrey with a fringe on top and explore the beach, hotel, and shops.
We ended the day with a trip to the Seaport Village and then driving around the Gaslamp Quarter before we had to run to the airport to catch our flights.
All in all the vacation was fabulous. It was so fun to hang out just the two of us and enjoy chatting and exploring!
